    I just finished A game of thrones, and I am very impressed. These are the best fantasy books I have ever read.

    On to a Clash of Kings...

    Best to read any books that you aren't completely 100% psyched to read before Song of Ice and Fire. Lots of people including me who have read the series have gone through a period of not being able to get into other books due to comparing them to Martin's work. Took me awhile to get into another series, but now I'm back to rereading SOIAF.

    I started reading A Game Of Thrones last night, it seems very cool so far. Im only about 4 chapters in. I gotta say, the Prologue was pretty cool, "The Others" are freaky !

    Oh, btw, I wanted to ask something about Tyrion Lannister. He's described as a dwarf, and was also called an Imp. But he's brother to a human, so im guessing GRRM means he's a short human, and not a dwarf like Gimli ? Is that right ? If its not, and I find out something about it later, then don't spoil it for me. Thankies !

    He is, for lack of a better word, a midget.
    They just refer to midgets as dwarfs, or imps. :)

    Okay, thanks Jessehk, also, what does the title Ser mean ? (As in Ser Jorah Mormont). Is that an honorific for Knights ?

    Its cool aye Nik ?

    So, can anyone be a Ser ? Or is it restricted to elders and stuff ? I ask, because i noticed all the Knights of The Seven Kingdoms (the order with only seven knights) are all Ser's, and so was Ser Waymon Royce at the very beginning, and he was only 18.
